BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — When you keep in mind that most of the region barely hit category 1 hurricane winds, it is arguably bizarre and troubling that FPL has hundreds of thousands of outages in Palm Beach County. Even more troubling: outages reported as early as 4am on Sunday in the Boca Raton and Delray Beach areas are still showing a status of “we are assessing the cause of the outage.”
FPL needs to do better. If tropical storm force winds bring down much of Palm Beach County, imagine what a real hurricane directly hitting the area would do.
It’s 2017. This is unacceptable. Especially when you consider that FPL has been raising rates to pay for system enhancements to prevent this very sort of mass outage.
We apologize for the inconvenience. We’re working to restore your power as safely and quickly as possible.
We’re still assessing the cause of the outage. We’ll provide an update as soon as possible.
